When you're alone and life is making you lonely
you can always go...
First off, the food was great, little bites from some of my fave restaurants, and I don't even have to drive to them. Delicious chicken w/mole sauce and salsa from Ciudad, my favorite garlic fries from Pinot. The Kid chomped on some asian style ribs and had strawberry fondue. All good. They also had free tickets to the Disney concert hall and discounted tickets to Avenue Q, but the kids were too busy taking in all the arts and crafts. Paint your own cultural masks! Make your own styrofoam lizards! Make your own drum! (god help me.)
MOCA. I visit museums a lot, but that is the only one that I have a membership to. It has a special place in my heart and I go there as often as I can. Granted, the art in there is definitely not for kids, but they had fun traipsing through the exhibits just the same. "Look Mommy, a...stool?" Yep. A stool. That's art, baby!
It was a fun day, but HOT. Hey man, I thought it was winter! As always, the heat got the better of me and I was laid out with a migraine for the rest of the afternoon. Sandwiching my head between two pillows to keep out the light, in between vomiting and near crying, it was all worth it cause damn that chicken mole was good.
